Stanwood High School student pages in the Washington State House of Representatives

Maleah Klesick paged in the Washington State House of Representatives March 2-6. The Stanwood High School student was sponsored by Rep. Norma Smith of the 10th District.  

Maleah was able to experience the Legislature in the second-to-last week of the 2020 legislative session. Some of her responsibilities included delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber, and attending Legislative Page School

“I enjoyed meeting with Maleah and hearing about her perspectives as a page in the House. She is an outstanding young woman with a very bright future,” said Smith, R-Clinton. “Maleah got to experience the dynamics of the Legislature. And I know, as a young leader, she will make the most of that experience.” 

Maleah, 15, is the daughter of Joelle and Tristan Klesick of Stanwood.

To serve as a page for the Washington State House of Representatives, a student must:

  • have permission from a parent or guardian;
  • have permission from his or her current school in the current year;
  • be sponsored by a member of the Washington State House of Representatives; and
